Well beaten in January/March on her two starts this season (2m/2m2f, soft); however, she's of interest based on a couple of runs last March (2m/2m3f, soft/good) and perhaps the first-time tongue-tie and first-time cheekpieces will prompt a revival.

Tailed off having made the running on handicap debut at Ludlow (2m5f) last time; has something to prove but this lightly raced 6yo is in top hands and had shown hints of promise previously; if he can leave that latest run behind he could play a major role in this poor race.
